Matt Buck says: “It’s im­por­tant to set both short-terms goals, and long-terms goals. Ad­just your short-term goals reg­u­larly and use them as step­ping stones to the long-term goal.

“The best thing about run­ning is you can con­tin­u­ously im­prove and bet­ter your­self. You’ll find your­self achiev­ing things this year that last year might have seemed im­pos­si­ble!

“It’s im­por­tant to set goals that are achiev­able but chal­leng­ing, whether it’s hit­ting a new PB or a new race dis­tance. Think care­fully about whether or not you think you can achieve the goal with the right train­ing. Don’t be afraid to chal­lenge your­self or set goals that are on the limit of your abil­i­ties, but give your­self a sen­si­ble time­line to work to­wards the chal­lenge."

Push your­self by set­ting goals that are slightly out of your com­fort zone
